Roomba 530. Thing works great considering its size. When people ask how well it work i have them do an area of there rug and then send the roomba to have a second sweep. The amount of stuff the other vacuum misses is unreal! Get a ROOMBA!

I have a Dyson allergy and a Roomba. I also have hardwood floors on the entire lower floor. I love to turn the roomba on when I leave to go somwhere. I come home and the floor is hair free. I use the Dyson for the major cleaning, but the Roomba is good at picking up those hair balls off the wood.
Something else that I might suggest, if you don't already use one, a Furminator cuts way down on those loose hairs. I very rarely see a fur ball since buying my Furminator.

I have the Dyson DC23 Animal. It was an investment but it really works well. The "Animal" model comes with a special kit for cleaning animal hair including a small beater bar for cleaning the sofa. You empty the canister out after each use and there's no bags to replace and it never loses it's suction. It has a HEPA filter on it as well. I believe the warranty is for 5 years.

How does you dog react to the Roomba? I'm afraid mine would consider it a toy and "good-bye" Roomba.

I bought a Bissel pet hair vacuum last summer, it works well but is heavy. I have an old sears canister and I really prefer it. I also have hard wood floors through with heavy area rugs. It seems to work well although I am changing bags a lot. I replace the beater bar every other year.

I use a light-weight Simplicity. It only weighs 8 pounds, and works far better than the Orek's.

It was expensive, but it's gone strong for 2 years now.

This is the one I have:

It is also the most powerful vacuum I've ever owned.

It has no attachments It is purely an upright. I use a hand-held Simplicity for that sort of thing.

Dyson Animal here. Unbelievable suction. I was skeptical until we got one.

both of my dogs try to stay out of its path. Murphy follows it around, but jumps if it unexpectedly turns in his direction.

Thanks for the response. I've been considering getting one for awhile now. I may try it, anything to help keep up with the fur balls.
